First run-ins and script reads for Pride and Prejudice

Filming has commenced on MBC’s legal-themed drama Pride and Prejudice, as you can see from these stills of leads Choi Jin-hyuk and Baek Jin-hee in their first shoots for the series. The scene pictured actually takes place five years before the characters’ official meeting, in which prosecutor Choi Jin-hyuk and student Baek Jin-hee have a coincidental first run-in in front of the Namsan staircase made famous by the drama My Name Is Kim Sam-soon.

The drama purports to depict the struggles of prosecutors to fight the prideful authorities and prejudiced system that impede justice, wherein our good guys face the bad guys “using people and love as their weapons” to stand up for the weak and poor citizens. That sounds almost too idealistic to work, but I suppose that’s the point: The leads are described as “loser prosecutors.” I don’t take that to necessarily mean that they’re pathetic—particularly since the hero has a brilliant legal mind and passed the bar exam at 21—but that they’re the underdog Davids in the fight to stand up to Goliath.

The script reading, meanwhile, took place last week and included the rest of the cast, including Choi Min-soo, Sohn Chang-min, and Choi Woo-shik (who I hadn’t even realized was going to be in this show). The drama, brought to us by Time Between Wolf and Dog’s PD and School 2013′s writer, will premiere in mid-October following Records of a Night Watchman.

I do not like that slicked-back style on Choi Jin-hyuk.....

Baek Jin-hee looks really pretty though. She was one of the few bright spots of Triangle despite playing a character who could be a sad-sack in the hands of a slightly less skilled actress. And I'm excited to see her in a proper lead at last! (Jung-hee in Triangle was more of a supporting character)

Yay for the black hair though! Is it expecting too much to want a prosecutor with a mane of glory? LOL. I mean, if he's a geeeeeenius prosecutor they'd still have to hire him, right? Especially, if his pride is in his Samson-like hair? ...or something like that? *madly rationalizing reasons*

I'm in the middle of Empress Ki now and she is doing an excellent job of making me loathe her while I was pretty indifferent to her character in Triangle. I hope she gets some lighter moments in this one. She has a very pretty smile.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm glad to see his forehead. His characters usually sport so much hair. Well, so much fringe...

Wait...will this go against Cantabile Tomorrow? Omo! I'm worried now. I hope the story will be good since this will be CJH's last drama before joining the army (if reports are true).

On a shallow note: what goes on with CJH's hair though? And in other news...Choi Woo-shik. Do I have to watch this now? With this writer I can see whatever character he's given being pretty good. Especially if he's anything like the Ten Team's maknae. He was hilariously adorable in that. I'm still skeptical.

CHOI WOO SHIK!! I love CJH (and his voice), but Choi Woo Shik is so . . . just so . . .

and is that my favorite uncle? Namgung Young from Glorious Day? He is so lovable in that; I am glad he is a higher profile show.

Baek Jin Hee has become so much prettier over the past couple of years. She kind of reminds me of Park Bo Young now. Maybe it's just me.

Why this drama has so many cute people? Baek Jin Hee, Choi Woo Shik, Choi Jin Hyuk (his first still is cute).
Does CWS become legal maknae? Hmm...
I should watch this, together with Tomorrow Cantabile.

".underdog David in the fight to stand up to Goliath..."

Of course that story is a myth. In fact, Goliath was a lumbering giant with a genetic disease, and was mostly blind. David has his sling - which was a version of today's assault weapon. :P

umm... can i also state my opinion on that "myth"? I just wanted to say that I don't believe that it's a myth and I believe that actually happened. I'm a Christian, so I just wanted to stand up for what I believe in... Sorry if I offended you in any way... So... umm... yeah >.<

I still think they should change their title. A non-Austen P&P calling itself P&P feels almost sacrilegious.

Also, is Choi Jin-hyuk gonna be a genius Darcy? I mean, if you're calling yourself P&P, might as well celebrate the original prideful/snobbish chaebol. Except he's not a chaebol this time... or is he? I don't recall them saying anything about him other than being a geeeenius prosecutor.

I know, right?! But, apparently, the drama isn't related at all to the book which sucks because P&P is the perfect book to adapt into a drama. P&P is the reason why the chaebol and poor, spunky girl steoreotypes exist!

Lol! Darcy, the "the original prideful/snobbish chaebol." I love that!

He's wearing a bit too much heavy metal jewelry for my liking (at the script reading). But am looking forward to the pairing. They will make a cute couple.

That's what I thought too. She gave a YEH vibe especially in the first two pics.

Everytime I read something about this drama I get soo frustrated! I don't know why they had to call the drama “Pride and Prejudice” and not even try to adapt a few things of the back. Now, I need someone to adapt P&P into a drama because I'm quite sure it'd be perfect! You have all the stereotypes you could possibly want: the arrogant chaebol, the intelligent and poor girl, the funny bffs (Bingley and Charlotte), the crazy matchmaking ajumma (Mrs. Bennet), etc etc.

By the way, CJH looks sexy with his hair pushed back and I'm kind of looking forward to this drama. Lately almost no drama has called or held my attention so hopefully this drama captures it.

I am happy that BJH finally gets the spotlight she deserves. I like her since Loving you a thousand times where she played a minor role as Lee Soo Kyung's little sister. She's pretty and likable ! But sadly I'm the only one who is not a fan of Choi Jin Hyuk. Can't stand him.

I know I know it's only meeee... Don't hit me please :p

Wow .. P&P, i have all the western versions. Will be interesting to see this Korean version. I wish it was set in historical times tho. Guess i'll have to settle for lawyers. Ugh. The big one I hope the dream masters in Korea take on tho.. is "The count of monte cristo" .. I would love to see an 80 hour historical drama korean style. I hope the makers of jewel in the palace, yi san, and dong Yi take on that challenge. And grab the actors from those shows too. Anyway P&P will be something to look forward to after the bitter crash of the mermaid chop.
